Trying to get into the building? Tweet @alisonjo2786 and we'll come for you right away!

This event is open to people of all experience levels, and it is not exclusive to TLM-members -- all women and allies are welcome! We have 20 slots available for in-person participation, and unlimited slots for remote participation. We encourage you to gather in local groups – it's easier and more fun to edit with other people! RSVP by adding your name to the appropriate list below (you'll want to register a Wikipedia user account first). If you signed up but can no longer join us in person, please remove yourself from the list so someone else can use your spot.

I'll be there in person! (20 person limit)[edit]
